can't connect to bamboo server

I get this in the log file when I try to connect to our test bamboo server:

2016-06-28 16:07:15,478 INFO [http-nio-8085-exec-12] [AccessLogFilter] GET 940816kb

I don't even get a login screen, but instead get:

      This site can’t be reached

   refused to connect.


Since I get errors in the log file, I clearly have connected, albeit briefly, to the bamboo server.

I had started bamboo up yesterday and logged in with a local user account and installed a stash-destined plugin into bamboo, by mistake. The "upload" failed, as it should. Then I shut down the bamboo server.

Today, I started bamboo up again, but I cannot connect, and I believe nothing has changed in the world since yesterday.

I then proceeded to upgrade bamboo software from 5.9.1 to, hoping that would fix something. It didn't.


I have our test Bitbucket server on the same machine, and have no problem browsing from my laptop to


I have no idea what could be wrong. Is there something in the postgresql database that I need to change?

Is there a setting in the that needs to change.

I'll take any advice as I am at wit's end.

I can connect via telnet to port 8085 on the bamboo machine:

$ telnet localhost 8085
Connected to localhost.
